Do you have what it takes to 'Beat Beethoven'? You can find out this weekend.
It's a race to finish a 5-K run before the Erie Philharmonic Orchestra completes Beethoven's 5th Symphony. We're talking between 31 and 35 minutes, and new this year, in addition to the run and the free concert, you'll find food trucks, the Millcreek Marching Band, and the Erie Playhouse Showstoppers, too.
Steve Weiser, Executive Director of the Erie Philharmonic, says, "We'll play about 30-40 minutes more of additional music, so think of it as a free concert in the park. Bring a blanket or a chair and just hang out".
The 8th Annual 'Beat Beethoven' Race and Street Fair is Saturday from 9am to 12pm in Perry Square.
All proceeds benefit the Erie Philharmonic.
